Riley Keough does not appear in the film until the 21 minute mark. See more »
Multiple scenes with snow either shows that the temperature was higher during filming, as the snowflakes are large, or that this was shot near spring and not around Christmas, as the snow is clearly old and melting. See more »
The Lodge follows two young siblings, and their soon to be stepmother, as they slowly fall into insanity. This is realised as a somewhat harsh prank gone horribly wrong, leading to deadly consequences. The film was portrayed adequately, albeit bleak and depressing, with good acting. Especially that of the young daughter, played by the talented Lia McHugh. There was also heavy focus on religious imagery, leaving one with the ultimate question of what happens when we die. Definitely worth checking out if you enjoy a slow burn psychological thriller.
